The anonymous individual shared his emotional story on Reddit, shedding light on the challenges faced post-proposal.

The couple, who had been together for four years, had openly discussed marriage, family planning, and building a future together.

According to the narrative, both families were deeply involved and supportive of their relationship.

In a bid to make the proposal special, the man had booked a luxurious resort where he intended to propose in a private setting, having given his girlfriend subtle hints about his intentions over the past few months.

However, the proposal [/b]didn’t go as planned. The girlfriend appeared shocked and requested more time to consider the commitment.

She cited her mental state as the primary reason, expressing the need to be in the right mindset before taking such a significant step.

The heartbroken man described the rejection as one of the most heartbreaking moments of his life.

In his words;

“I was in a relationship with my girlfriend for 4 years. We really loved each other, my family loved her, her family loved me. We had discussions of marriage, we made plans for the future, how many kids we wanted. My girlfriend was always extremely excited about it. Over the last few months, I was giving her consistent hints that I was going to propose to her, and last weekend I booked a nice resort, where I would plan to propose to her at a private place.

“Well when I did propose to her, she somehow seemed shocked about it, and asked if she could have a few more months. That just completely stunned me and was one of the most heartbreaking moments of my life. My girlfriend kept apologizing, saying she just needed to be in the right mental space, and that right then, she wasn’t. She cried and promised me that we were technically engaged, she just needed a few more months to officially accept the proposal.I felt empty, sad, embarrassed. I felt horrible. When we returned back to our apartment, she was apologizing a lot, and there was also a lot of crying. The whole situation for me was so heartbreaking and embarrassing, that I could not talk about it with any of my friends or even my parents. I could only consult my siblings.

“My siblings had completely contrasting opinions. My brother told me maybe she got cold feet, and a lot of people get cold feet, and to just give her time because she seemed like a genuine person. However, my sister told me what my girlfriend did was girl code for cheating and that my girlfriend was probably ashamed about accepting about my proposal, given that she most likely was having an affair. My sister told me that my girlfriend would probably call off the affair in the next couple of months, after which she would be comfortable accepting the proposal.

“Completely contrasting opinions, but I sided with my sister because my brother gets a bit naive at times. The more I thought about, the more what my sister said made logical sense, and that just shattered my heart even more.

“So a couple of days ago, after my girlfriend came home from work, I told her we were done and that she had a couple of hours to pack up and leave. I gave her no heads up about it. I gave no reasons. She was shocked and talking a lot, asking why, but at this point, I just didn’t trust her anymore. She obviously cried but I was over it. A couple hours later, her friend came to pick her up, and I blocked her number so I didn’t get any more texts.I am still suffering a lot, and it will take a lot of time to heal through this. AITAH?
